About

Kelly Hill Conservation Park (including Kelly Hill Caves) is closed for public safety following the recent bushfires. 

The majority of the park and much of its infrastructure was burnt in the January 2020 bushfire, but the toilets survived! We’re working hard to rebuild and reimagine the park. 

In the meantime, the good news is that green shoots are emerging from vegetation in nearby Flinders Chase National Park and Ravine des Casoars Wilderness Protection Area and there are native animal sightings like goannas, eagles, kangaroos and KI echidnas. 

Flinders Chase National Park is home to beautiful coastal landscapes and iconic features such as Remarkable Rocks, Admirals Arch and Cape du Couedic Lighthouse. 

It now offers an incredible opportunity to witness a landscape regenerating after fire and will be open soon for guided tours

Until then Kangaroo Island is a big place and if you’re thinking about visiting, there’s still plenty to do. Round up some friends and plan a trip to Kangaroo Island with the help of southaustralia.com’s itineraries

Traditional owners

Aboriginal peoples have occupied, enjoyed and managed the lands and waters of this State for thousands of generations. For Aboriginal first nations, creation ancestors laid down the laws of the Country and bestowed a range of customary rights and obligations to the many Aboriginal Nations across our state. 

There are many places across the State that have great spiritual significance to Aboriginal first nations.  At some of these places Aboriginal cultural protocols, such as restricted access, are promoted and visitors are asked to respect the wishes of Traditional Owners.

In places where protocols are not promoted visitors are asked to show respect by not touching or removing anything, and make sure you take all your rubbish with you when you leave.

Aboriginal peoples continue to play an active role in caring for their Country, including in parks across South Australia.
